Happy Hour: Milliaire Old Vine 2003 Carignane

Isn't it funny when you learn about something new and then suddenly it's everywhere? That's exactly what happened to me a couple of weeks ago when I tasted this Milliaire Old Vine 2003 Carignane. Immediately I'm noticing it everywhere and I'm asking myself, how did I never notice it before?

I instantly enjoyed the intense flavor of this grape that I now recognize on wine lists. Although this varietal originated in Spain, this California-grown Carignane is robust with simple berry undertones. Made from vines that are 80-years-old, it has a gorgeous ruby color. I can't wait to get my hands on another bottle and suggest you do the same!
